Ruto Finally Finds Something New to do After Matiang'i 'Snatched' His Job Away

Deputy President William Ruto has now been reduced to launching projects initiated by his allies as his new reason to go around the country meeting his supporters and drumming up support for himself.

Initially, before his fallout with President Uhuru Kenyatta, Ruto used government project launching events as one of his campaign excuses ahead of his 2022 presidential bid.

The job has, however, been taken away from him and given to Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, in what has been seen as part of the plot to tame the DP.

As a result, Ruto has now resorted to launching projects being done or being carried out by politicians allied to him, which is what he will be doing at the Coast for three days beginning Thursday.

This was confirmed by Lungalunga Member of Parliament Khatib Mwashetani, one of the five leaders who will host him during the tour that will see him visit Kwale, Mombasa and Kilifi counties.

“The Deputy President will be leading the hustler nation programme in the counties of Kwale, Kilifi and Mombasa and also interact with his supporters and launch projects," Mwashetani told The Star.

The others who will host Ruto are Former Mombasa senator Hassan Omar and MPs Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Mohammed Ali (Nyali) and Benjamin Tayari (Kinango).

The tour comes as part of Ruto's attempts to rally the region behind him, in an area where his popularity seems to be on the rise, having succeeded in winning over a section of area leaders formerly allied to the dominant ODM party.

Himself and his allies have also been buoyed by their recent win in Msambweni, where their candidate Feisal Bader defeated ODM's Omar Boga in the December 2020 by-election.
